The contest jury comprises 19 picture editors, photographers and representatives of press agencies from different parts of the world, with widely divergent backgrounds. This brings to the process a breadth of experience, a variety of perception and a contrast in viewpoint that keeps judging dynamic and bolsters objectivity.

Prize-winning photographers are invited to receive their awards at the annual Awards Days in Amsterdam at the end of April.
